“Who are the Marcuses?” – Congregation Emanu El

September 19, 2024 6:00PM - 9:00PM

Join A4BGU’s Houston Chapter for a special screening of “Who Are The Marcuses?” in partnership with Congregation Emanu El.

“Who Are The Marcuses?” uncovers a mysterious Long Island couple whose half-a-billion-dollar gift inspires peace and climate action through water technology in Israel. Holocaust survivors Lottie and Howard Marcus, an unassuming couple who first settled in Great Neck, New York, and retired to a modest two-bedroom apartment in San Diego, California, bequeathed a half-billion dollars to Ben Gurion University in 2016 – the largest single charitable donation in Israel’s history. An amazing story of how two “ordinary” people made an extraordinary impact.
